Fire-fighting Helicopter with Water Bucket

Evidently there is a wildfire up in the Miller Creek Canyon area south of Missoula at the present time, 10 am, Sept 2, with this helicopter picking up water from the Bitterroot River approximately every ten minutes. I am located about five miles south of the Buckhouse Bridge.

If your click on this photo, you can clearly see the pilot at the controls. Shutter speed 1/250 almost stopped the blades. F5.6 aperture.

Wonderful shots but am sorry to hear about the fires.
